I have here a small code snippet of my own take on calling Thread.join() in Java.

public void pause(){
  running = false;
  boolean retry = true;
  while (retry){
   try{
	thread.join();
	retry = false;
   }
   catch (InterruptedException e){
	retry = true;
   }
  }
}

This pause() stops a Thread.run() while loop (of another instance of Thread) from running continuously with the flag "running" set to false. Then I tried looping the thread.join() in order to get absolutely 100% on thread joining.

Is this the preferred and simple way of joining threads? What else out there are also efficient in thread joining? Thanks in advance.
